The Limousin/Auvergne region

Haute-Vienne is appreciated by many due to the diversity it offers. Those who are looking for calmness will love the most rural areas of Haute-Vienne, with its unspoilt nature. But those who do not want to be remote will be glad to live near Limoges and its airport.

Historical heritage: the specific culture and language of the Haute-Vienne still remains as a heritage of past centuries. It is attested by the dialect you can ear spoken by most people upper 50 years, which is also called Limousin. As well, many castles dating back to the Middle-Ages or museums can be seen if you are interested in culture and patrimony. Lanternes des Morts are another kind of legacy that can also be found in Haute-Vienne. These former buildings are empty pillars in granite with a niche at the top in which a flame was hoisted to “lighten up eternity”. It was mostly used during the 12th century to help the dead people to "find their way".

Gourmet food: the gastronomy of the department accounts for varied recipes such as the potatoes pie or the clafoutis, which is a dessert made with cherries, covered with pancakes pastry. As well, chestnut is very appreciated and not less than 80 different varieties of apples grow up in Limousin.

Scenery: known as the Land of a Thousand Lakes, the Limousin and its Haute-Vienne department offer beautiful and preserved landscapes. Waterfalls sparkling in the middle of rocks and trees, myriads of flowers and impressive dense forests are the kind of treasures that can be discovered in the department.

Location – transport links: the easy and cheap access from the United Kingdom with companies as Ryanair or from French cities made that Limoges and the Haute-Vienne became an attractive destination. There is also a project of enlargement for Limoges' airport


Outdoor activities: lots of activities can be done in this welcoming region, but hiking and fishing are perhaps the most popular ones. Indeed, four hiking tracks which represent not less than 150km of walk are accessible. The lake of Boischneu offers pleasant moments of fishing. With an acreage of 7 ha., it is situated in a magnificent setting where it is simple to relax. Number of stunning lakes and parts of the Vienne river, very close to Rochechouart, are the perfect place to fish big carps!

"great quaint private property."

Its our first visit to this property, we was made most welcome by ruith the owner told us everything we wanted to know about the surronding area. The property is in such peacefull surroundings that you can hear a pin drop. It has a great decking and pool area for sunbathing and a nice lake for a spot of fishing. we will definatly stay again some time.
M and E Alker.

Glad you had a great time, the perfect guests, hope to see you again!

"Relaxing retreat with good fishing"

We went to fish, that's what we did, the gazebo was a dream thank very much, it did help.
Covert aera for bbq was perfect.
Only downside was the lack of heating, weather didn't help but getting out of bed and into the bathroom is not for the faint hearted.
All in all brillant stay.
Thank you very much we had a great time.

Lovely guests, such a pity it rained your entire week, April is a funny month you just can never be sure of the weather or temperature.
